About the Role:
We are looking for a dynamic and creative Senior Project Worker, to lead our Resource Centre in Golspie. This role involves provision of recovery-focussed and person-centred support to people attending the Centre, through individual and group-based work, as well as leading the Centre team and managing the service.
Ideally, the successful candidate will have some or all of the following: an SVQ Level 3 qualification in Social Services and Health Care (or an equivalent qualification), experience of leading a service and of providing support to people whose mental health issues seriously affect their lives. The post holder will be required to pass a PVG check.
This is one of a number of centres around Scotland where Change Mental Health welcomes people with a wide variety of mental health conditions and offers compassionate, creative, focussed support that can assist recovery. Our aim in these centres is to provide a warm, welcoming environment where people can find the confidence and trust that they need in order to engage with support.
As Senior Project Worker you will be the lead for a small team of Project Workers and Volunteers, providing line management, supervision and advice for the staff, as well as engaging directly in support work with people who use the centre. You will also have scope to use your creativity in developing the Centre, through cooperation with service users, the Centre staff and colleagues in stakeholder organisations. This role will be an opportunity to bring new energy and ideas to a service that already has a well-deserved reputation for providing an excellent service.
